For myself, newer films tend to overwhelm my senses and leave me rattled. I don't care how well produced and directed they are or how technically brilliant. I don't like the feeling of my brain and soul being assaulted from a film. Entertainment for me is to relax and enjoy, not go through a white-knuckle sweat-out. I get enough of the sad state of humanity from the news every day. Older films allow me to escape from all that. I'll take Charles H. Schneer and Ray Harryhausen as well as much older black and white films over Spielberg any day. Just my feeling.

I think I'm with you Jeff. When guys get shot,I don't need to see all of the blood. I don't need all of the bad words to enjoy a movie. The new movies with the special effects are great. But if I want to feel a little better an old comedy or musical does the trick.
